Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie announced Wednesday that the team has signed veteran free agent DT Daniel Muir.
Muir is a six-year veteran that has appeared in 46 NFL games, including 26 starts during his career with the NY Jets, Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers. With those three teams, Muir has accumulated 130 tackles, .5 sacks and one pass defensed.
Muir last saw action in 2012 when playing with the Jets, appearing in three games and recording three tackles. The 322-pound defensive tackle saw his best year in 2009 with the Colts when he made 10 starts and recorded 66 tackles and half a sack.
The Raiders also announced they re-signed offensive lineman Jack Cornell to the practice squad. Cornell was released earlier this week by the Raiders in order to make more room for wide receiver Andre Holmes to be activated.
